Karroubi ‘house arrest’ after protest call

Iranian opposition leader Mehdi Karroubi has been put under house arrest, his official website says. Security officials at the premises say the measures will last until next week, it adds. No one is being allowed to enter the house except his wife. Mr Karroubi and Mir-Hossein Mousavi, another opposition leader, had called for a rally on Monday to support the popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia. The authorities refused permission, calling it a political move.
